Thanks to the support of generous community members, Lakeside Pride continues to grow and further our mission. Thanks in large part to supporters like yourself, we were able to accomplish the following in the last season alone:

  • we were able to perform more than 40 performances, from intimate brass quintets to the famous marching band performance at the Chicago Pride Parade,
  • debut new standalone concerts for growing ensembles like the Wilde Cabaret vocal group,
  • engage dozens of new members and grow many ensembles to the largest size they’ve even been,
  • partner with new organizations like the Chicago Red Stars soccer team, Macy’s, and The Field Museum to build the Chicagoland LGBTQA community,
  • and continue to support allied organizations like the Center on Halsted, American Veterans for Equal Rights, Oak Park Area Lesbian and Gay Association.
Lakeside Pride greatly appreciates donations at any level, which can be made online, or by sending a check to our mailing address.
